Few Arrows graduated having gone unaffected by Dan, who was heavily involved in the life of the School as both a teacher and a coach.

Dan’s days as an Arrow date back to the fall of 1958 when he arrived on campus as a 7th grader. He was actively involved as a student, participating in Varsity Hockey’s 36-game winning streak from the 1960 through 1962 seasons and captaining the 1963-64 team. He served as Vice-President in his junior year and then as Class Treasurer as a senior.

After graduating from Boston College in 1968, he returned to St. Sebastian’s to help Henry Lane ‘49 coach hockey. He ultimately joined the faculty as the Director of Physical Education and never looked back. Dan was a very successful coach, leading the Golf team to ISL championships in ’83, ’85, ’93, ’94, and ’96. He also coached the Varsity Hockey Team to ISL titles in ’92 and ’93. He recently retired from teaching at the end of last year.

From a wide-eyed 7th grader to an accomplished and honored alumnus, Dan Williams has dedicated 48 years of his life in service to this School. For that, we thank him.
